News | 5.1.2017

Language circle is a free time activity carried out by international and Finnish students. There are voluntary meetings where international students can meet Finnish and other international students. Groups are available in different languages, and the idea is to use that specific language in the group so that the native speakers can help non-native speakers practice their language skills. It is completely up to the group members to decide what they want to do in their group.  At the end of the semester, the participants will receive a certificate to show that they have participated.
